Rocks thrown at cars in Jerusalem on Yom Kippur

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Dozens of vehicles were damages in Jerusalem by rocks thrown on Yom Kippur.

Hundreds of Jewish gathered at the corner of Hebron and Bethlehem streets after Yom Kippur Eve services and threw rocks at passing cars, Haaretz reported.

Some of the damaged cars belong to Palestinians, who use the road to travel between Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Other damaged vehicles were from area hospitals, according to the newspaper.

Activists reportedly had contacted Jerusalem Police in advance of the holiday to warn them of the annual rock throwing at that corner.
